Question about Ximeta NetDisk (DHNDU10120)

1 Answer

Netdisk 160 gb ximeta won't get power

I have the 160 GB version that will not power up all of a sudden. It is almost as if there is a short in the power connector or something, as it will stay on if the power cord is barley plugged in, but when i push it all the way in, the power dies. The power adapter light comes on just like normal, just not the lights on the drive itself except for a brief flash, or when i barley stick the cord in just the right spot. And when the power light is on, my PC wont recognize it, most likely because its not getting a full connection. Any ideas? Anyone know how to disassemble this model without breaking it?

You may be right about a connection issue. But it's probably not a short. More likely, it's an open! Anyway, here's how to open the case:

There is a hole on each side of the NetDisk near the back. Face the back towards you, insert a blunt pencil tip or other blunt object able to fit in the hole on each side and press in. (Be gentle, these are plastic tabs on th inside)

At the same time, use your thumbs to slide the top half of the case away from you. (towards the front. Once you get ig toing, you can let go of the pencils and continue. forward with thte top of the case.

Win 7 64 bit freeze when starting XiMeta's NDAS NetDisk. I'm using newest version 3.72 from Ximeta website.


I have the same problem. I don't have the right solution but I discovered a workaround.
The problem occurs everytime when I install a windows 7 update.
My work around:
  1. When Windows determines an update I disable the NDAS service with msconfig
  2. The update is installed without the NDAS service operational.
  3. After update I enable the NDAS service with msconfig
  4. I restart my computer. Then it freezes.
  5. After a hard reset, the computer restarts in Safe modus. I restart my computer and my computer works, till the next windows 7 update. Then I start again van 1.
Very suboptimal, but it works.

Free space availabilities


Is it formatted as FAT32? If so, it doesn't support files larger than 4GB.

Backup the files you have on it, then reformat as NTFS.

Power on NetDisk


try connecting the drive to a different system and see if that works.Incase it workd on another system than reinstall the USB drivers by going into the device manager.Also you could try different USB cords as there could be an issue with that as well.
